Ann Raymunt Obituary
Ann (Whaley) Raymunt
"Loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother"
"Her air, her manners … all who saw admired." (yearbook quote)
Ann (Whaley) Raymunt, age 85 of Waterbury, passed away peacefully after a long battle with Alzheimer's, at Beacon Brook Health Center in Naugatuck. She was the former wife of the late James J. Raymunt Sr.
Ann was born November 23, 1932 in Marion, South Carolina. She was the daughter of the late Manley Deloan and late Annie (Hinson) Whaley. She was a graduate of Greenville High School in Greenville, SC. Prior to her retirement in 1999, Ann worked as a telephone operator for AT&T (formerly SNET) for 33 years in New Milford, Danbury, and Waterbury.
Ann was born and raised in South Carolina as Willie Ann Whaley, but after high school preferred to go by Ann. As a beautiful young woman, she won the title of Miss Greenville, a fact she was very proud of. It was in Greenville SC, that her friends talked her into going to a local pool to relax, where she met Jim Raymunt, a US Air Force man who was a "Yankee" from Connecticut, as her family liked to call him. Her life was forever changed. They married in 6 months on December 12,1952 and began a life traveling the world. The US Air Force took them from South Carolina to Bermuda, Utah, Florida, Okinawa, and Ohio, finally settling at the Raymunt family homestead in Washington Depot, CT. Despite their divorce, she always remained close to her Raymunt in laws, especially Magdalena, who she felt was the sister she never had. Her children and grandchildren were her life. Family gatherings filled her with great joy. She had a great love of music and singing and was known for her rendition of Amazing Grace. Her late brother Carl always said she was a great inspiration to him. Ann just had a sparkle about her, with a beautiful smile and an infectious laugh. She will be forever missed and though she has left us, she will continue to shine on in us.
Ann had six children: she is survived by three sons James J. Raymunt Jr and his wife Rene of Waterbury, Randall Raymunt and his husband Russell Brown of Spring Hill, FL, Mark Raymunt and his wife Roxanne of Torrington, two daughters Linda Kraemer and her husband Dennis of Coventry, Teresa (Terri) Raymunt of Waterbury, her daughter in law Suzan Raymunt of Shelton who is the wife of predeceased son Richard Raymunt, her former son in law Tony Krusky of Bantam, ten grandchildren (Allison, Sarah, Melisa, Jason, Benjamin, Jonathan, Brittney, Monica, Natalie and Christine), four great-grandchildren (Juliana, Tullah, Winter, and Clara) and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brothers Carl Whaley, Manley Deloan Whaley Jr, Harold Whaley and Jerry (Whaley) Henderson.
